Summary: When space and not enough ports is a problem, this is THE solution! Just plug and play, nothing to configure. Put your internet connection into one port and you have 15 for your lan computers. Linksys is awesome, has been running in my office since I bought it without any downtime at all.
Summary: This switch is very handy for business meetings and since it has 16 ports it has enough capacity to meet everyone's needs. We carry it back and forth between conference rooms so it's nice that it has a compact and sturdy metal case.
Summary: I just had my second one of these die within a year and was surprised to see that another reviewer had exactly the same problem. They definitely do run hot, and they definitely die much too soon!
Summary: This unit runs VERY hot, almost too hot to touch. After a few ports went out I called for a warranty replacement and received one that still runs hot. I expect I will have to call about this again in the future. As prices fall this one may not be worth the cash.
Summary: I had 2 of the SD216 LINKSYS switches. Both sat on their rubber feet. One was in a network with a few other switches. But the one that failed today was the only switch in the network. Both had the Linksys to Cisco Trade Up Program sticker on them.
Summary: This replaced my five port switch for my house. Needed more ports with the exansion of my home system. This was a reasonalbe cost addition. Was very easy to setup. Just plug it in and to the router and then plug all the home extentions into this switch. Pluged in the power and it was up and running.
